Yesterday, Selina Briggs of The Jelly Empire let the cat out of the bag so to speak. She tweeted the picture above of the previously unannounced MoCCA Fest 2011 Exclusive The Jelly Empire x Argonaut Resins Jelly Bot & Tuttz Mini Resin Figure Sets. Not much is known about these four figures other than the two on the left are the green Zombie Set (might it be glow in the dark?) and they will most likely be available for purchase this weekend at The Jelly Empire’s MoCCA Festival Booth #L23.

First a new Pony Falcone, then a new Burgerbuns…and now Le Merede is releasing an all new Hollis Price resin figure tomorrow! These past few months have truly been a walk down memory lane for The Blot and all of the other fans of the Le Merede-verse, and I hope it doesn’t end any time soon. I seriously can’t wait to see what Le Merede’s got cooking for his next release.
The Hollis Price Resin Figure with Clear Pink Glitter Tennis Racket by Le Merde will retail for $100 each and goes on sale at Le Merde's online store this Friday, April 8th, at 11am PDT.
The latest resin figure from ESC Toy unexpectedly dropped yesterday and The Blot knows this is one figure you won’t want to miss! Mama Sama "Dungeon Runner" by Erick Scarecrow is the 2nd Mama Sama colorway (the 1st was the SDCC 2010 exclusive "Blazing" colorway), and the colors just pop off this figure’s black body. The Mama Sama Dungeon Runner is a 6" hand painted, signed and numbered resin figure, and comes with two removable accessories: a spear and wings. The "Dungeon Runner" colorway is limited to just 30 pieces and available right now from the all new ESC Toy online store for $125 each.
Mama Sama Dungeon Runner’s Story: Mama Sama chased the Pearly Guardian into a dark dungeon where she lost track of him. The Pearly Guardian knew the dungeon very well because it was a maze trap he built for his boss, the Boom Jack Papa Sama. The maze was to prevent anyone from reaching his treasure of "Wood Hermit" masks.
In order to trap Mama Sama forever in the dungeon, the Pearly Guardian threw a potion at Mama Sama. The effects of it would turn her into a permanent shadow that would be controlled by dungeon's candle lights. He accidentally missed but drops of the potion altered Mama Sama's appearance and weapon. The Pearly Guardian saw this and hauled tail.
Obey Giant has announced the fourth screen print in Shepard Fairey’s new “Art In The Streets” series, and it’s entitled “SF Fire Escape Print.” The Blot seriously cannot believe how quickly Obey is producing these “Art In The Streets” prints. You’d think they’d want to space it out more, but considering how quickly these prints are selling out I guess they know what they’re doing. I’m interested in seeing how many more prints will be in the series. The image above features one of Fairey’s favorite street spots for graffiti, which appears to be a fire escape somewhere in San Franscisco.
“SF Fire Escape Print” by Shepard Fairey is an 18”x24″ screen print, comes signed and numbered by the artist, and has a limited edition run size of 450 pieces. This is the fourth Obey Giant print from the “Art In The Streets” art show, and will retail for $45 each. The print goes sale at a random time (between 10am and 12noon PDT) today, Thursday, April 7th, at the Obey Giant online store.
